Virgin Galactic meeting and the space suit

Virgin Galactic hosts various meetings throughout the year. I flew on 19.02.2020 to London. At this meeting, our space suit was introduced. It was introduced by Tom Westray, who has been designing the suit. The suit consists of 150 parts. The suit has padding on the shoulders, a place for the flag, a place for the name, several pockets and other details. I spent the evening with 30 other Virgin Galactic customers and we were really happy with the suit. You get the suit after the flight.

Mars research

The meeting was held at the Desing Museum, which also had an exhibition on Mars exploration. There are many projects aimed at exploring or colonizing Mars. Elon Musk wants to make permanent housing on Mars. NASA plans to build a space station for exploration of Mars. It was amazing to see this exhibition. I recommend!

Virgin Galactic Office

Then the next day I went to the Virgin Galactic office in London. Virgin Galactic is in the same building with other Virgin companies. When I was at office, I thought that I would ask at the VG office one thing that I've been thinking about for 10 years. In 2010, two Finns bought a space trip a week and I was the second. In 2010 you were able to pay for part of the trip, where the start number is after persons who have paid the full price. I paid the full price in 2010, but I didn't know what the other Finn had paid. I got to know that I'm going to be the first Finn in space, which is nice thing.
Below are photos of the space suit and Mars exploration.
